Combining craft philosophies, methodologies and materials with new technologies, Alterfact, Bin Dixon-Ward and Michaela Pegum are at the forefront of exciting developments in contemporary craft practice. Through their experimental and sensitive approach to making, these artists are creating new materials, expanding the possibilities of various technologies, and contributing to a new interpretation of the handmade in craft. Alterfact’s practice is currently focused on the 3D printing with clay, pushing the boundaries of this traditional plastic-based medium. Bin Dixon-Ward uses CAD and 3D printing to explore the links between the geometry of buildings and contemporary jewellery. Michaela Pegum’s work explores experiences that hover on the thresholds of knowledge and mystery and how these can be expressed in material form.
